Steve Alford gets a 10-year contract extension. Jamie Dixon gets a 10-year contract extension. Josh Pastner gets a contract extension. Anyone who gets mentioned as a candidate at USC seems to get an extension.
I mentioned on twitter that I considered Pastner more of a hustler than a coach, so I don’t think USC lost out there. But now the search gets to the part where I doubt Pat Haden enjoys it because the A-list candidates are evaporating.
That means USC might still get a great coach but it will either be through luck (like Pete Carroll) or timing. And I’m sure Tim Floyd is smiling right now watching the candidates disappear.
